Motion segmentation is an important task in video surveillance and in many high-level vision applications. This paper proposes two generic methods for motion segmentation from surveillance video sequences captured from different kinds of sensors like aerial, Pan Tilt and Zoom (PTZ), thermal and night vision. Motion segmentation is achieved by employing Hotelling's T-Square test on the spatial neighborhood RGB color intensity values of each pixel in two successive temporal frames. Further, a modified version of Hotelling's T-Square test is also proposed to achieve motion segmentation. On comparison with Hotelling's T-Square test, the result obtained by the modified formula is better with respect to computational time and quality of the output. Experiments along with the qualitative and quantitative comparison with existing method have been carried out on the standard IEEE PETS (2006, 2009 and 2013) and IEEE Change Detection (2014) dataset to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method in the dynamic environment and the results obtained are encouraging.
